Narrative

Guide dogs for the blind/visually impaired. Training sessions 26 day in Yorktown Heights. Also has program for visually impaired with secondary disability (for example, deafness, balance difficulty).

In 2008, Heeling Autism service dogs began providing safety and companionship for children with autism.  Our dogs have exceeded our expectations, and more importantly, those of the families that we serve, in countless ways.  The program’s outcomes are tangible and evoke hope for the future.
